Lubbock Police have a suspect in the shooting death of Rex McGuire, but what they don't have is a motive.

McGuire was found dead, and his truck stolen from his South Lubbock home, last Wednesday. After escaping South Plains authorities on Saturday, Vernon Ray Gilmore was captured in the Fort Worth area. Gilmore later told authorities where to find McGuire's truck.

Wednesday night, sources close to McGuire tell NewsChannel 11 the two men knew each other from a past job at an auto glass company.

Gilmore was brought back to Lubbock Tuesday, and charged with capital murder. He remains in the Lubbock County Jail.
